The BFG Edition variant of the DOOM.WAD file is inappropriately marked as a PWAD. This will cause some source ports to malfunction or to issue warning messages when using it.

Doom Eternal includes a copy of the PlayStation Network version of DOOM.WAD (along with the version of DOOM2.WAD) under its install directory, in base/classicwads.

During installation of Doom for Pocket PC, the WAD is modified to include extra bytes at the end of the WAD as part of the copy protection.
